Once again, it’s time for a little round-up of project rumours which are inevitable when it comes to an actor as successful as Marion Cotillard:

• Gravity Sources: BleedingCool (July 24) & Hollywood Reporter (August 10)
Marion Cotillard screen-tested for the lead role of the outer space drama à la ‘Cast Away’ this summer after Angelina Jolie dropped out. However, it looks like either Scarlett Johansson or Blake Lively will get the part.

• Batman 3 Sources: ComicBookMovie.com & Batman Movie News (August 18)
Marion Cotillard was reportedly approached by the studio to play either Selina Kyle (Catwoman) or Talia al Ghul (estranged daughter of villain Ra’s al Ghul). The “inside source” goes on to say that Marion turned them down due to commitments and attachments to other projects. Basically, simple “hearsay” which has since been taken off the internet at its original source about her being approached is currently being spun into a sensational rumour across the cyberspace. Interestingly, Elle.fr writes that Marion turned down the offers due to “projects close to her heart”. I leave it to you whether they have inside information or were simply being original.

• Marsupilami The ambitious project has been discreetly developed by the production company Chez Wam since 2004 and Marion’s name was recently dropped by a Mexican newspaper in connection with it. According to Le Parisien shooting seems to start September 20 and will last until mid-January 2011. Interestingly, La Môme (La Vie en Rose)’s Production Designer Olivier Raoux is involved… Staying tuned!

I wonder if Marsupilami has any relation to the Disney cartoon?
I used to LOVE that when I was a kid! Haha.

To be honest i’d be happy to see Marion participate in any of those films!
All of them sound like new territory for her and it definitely seems like she’s trying to build up a strong portfolio of work within the US.
Hopefully by working on a variety of different projects she’ll show her diversity and we’ll see her as a lead in some upcoming films!

I think it actually does – just read up on it on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marsupilami

Definitely have to agree on that! I love that it’s in relation to projects by great directors that we’ve heard Marion’s name

Won’t she be filming Contagion during the time Marsupilami is filming? My understanding is that she has the lead female part in Contagion, but I could be wrong about that.

Also, it’d be kind of crazy for her to turn down the Catwoman part. She would be an A-list star after that. Yes, it’s a comic book movie, but it’s a comic book movie directed by Christopher Nolan. The only thing I can think of is that she may be filming Cosmopolis at that time. But I still would think she would try to find a way to make it work. That’s a star making role.

Contagion is an ensemble cast, other actresses are Kate Winslet and Gwyneth Paltrow. Marion will probably not be needed for the whole time.

Filming for Marsupilami is not with actors the whole time as it’s partly animated.

Apart from Cosmopolis let’s not forget her other rumoured projects Second Coming and Vivre c’est mieux que mourir.
